It’s hard to think about fall and winter when it’s still 30 degrees out… so it’s a good thing that Sassy faves BCBGMAXAZRIA took that into account and kept their autumn wardrobe bright and chic. From ladylike lace to cool cut-outs, here’s our trend report from BCBG’s Fall/Winter 2012 Collection!
Who says you can’t wear bright sundresses in the fall? BCBG’s elegant dresses are still reminiscent of a sunny palette, but layers of lace give them a more formal twinge compared to summery cotton. Just pop on a pair of sling-backs with the yellow or pink dress and you’d be ready for a classy brunch with the girls.
Meanwhile, if there’s someone you’d like to impress, the forest green mesh dress with some stilettos and an envelope clutch would surely do the trick! With BCBG’s accessories also channelling lacy prints, there’s no excuse to not incorporate it into your look.
Don’t Block Out the Colours
Staying true to their love of colour collaging, colour-blocking is still in this season at BCBG. If you’re more the daring dresser, you’d love this palette of black, orange and maroon pieced together on this knee length dress. But if you’re more monotone like myself, this pleated black, grey and yellow dress would be perfect with a large bangle and cute tote. But whatever your preference, just remember to dress bold even in the cold (well… as cold as Hong Kong gets anyway)!
Red is the new black this autumn/winter, with many make-up brands going for maroon liners or brick red lipsticks this season. So follow suit with your wardrobe and BCBG’s chic mesh blouse, which could be office appropriate or bar ready depending on how you layer it… or don this flouncy chiffon halter dress and burn up the dance floor! If red clashes with your complexion (as it does mine), plum is just as popular this fall – I’m definitely adding this deep V satin top, paired winningly with a statement necklace, to my wardrobe the next time I pop by BCBG!
Black Is Back… again!
It’s useless to try to escape from black as it is the classic staple of every girl’s winter wardrobe – but BCBG proved that black doesn’t have to be boring. My absolute favourite of everything I saw from the new collections were these leggings lined with leather to provide shape and comfort. Maybe I’m just biased towards tailored looks, as I also loved the military coat that would look stunning with skinnies, BCBG’s gold cut-out booties and some other glimmering accessories.
But black isn’t always a rocker chick’s go-to. The mesh cut-out dress and patterned frock are just the right amount of sexy and would be so glam with a fur coat on a winter evening!
So which trends do you think you’ll be working this season? Let us know!
